    Breakfast/Brunch tailgate ideas

    For the K-state game I'm in charge of getting together a breakfast/brunch tailgate for the family, ages 9-70. Other than Breakfast burrito's and bloody mary's what are some other ideas. I will have a grill I can cook on and I'm thinking of buying a griddle surface for half of it.

    So please share with me your go to tailgate foods for these early games.

    GO CYCLONES!!!

    Thanks in advance

    ~Jim

    It's kind of the easy way out, but I have preordered a few Casey's breakfast pizzas and picked them up on the way to the stadium. I like the breakfast burrito idea too!

    Sausage patties and glazed donuts.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Pre cook bacon, sausage, ham. Pre cut mushrooms, onions, peppers, tomatoes, etc. Put in individual containers. Bring 3 or so skillets that will work on the grill and let people make their own omeletts.

    Steak and eggs is also a good choice.

    Hot cakes always kill it at a tailgate! I usually don't cheap out and buy the fancy maple syrup, too. So much goodness to get me (and the fam') going for the game!

    Re: Breakfast/Brunch tailgate ideas

    My wife always pre-cooks homemade sausage mcmuffins with eggs...makes them the night before, throws them in the oven or on the grill wrapped in foil for a few minutes and they melt in your mouth...

    I have been known to roll 3 or 4 of them if there aren't enough takers! She makes them for me and golf buddies whenever we have an outing also...

    Modification on this: crack a couple eggs into a ziploc baggie and add other ingredients (onions, bacon, etc...). Seal ziploc baggie and place in boiling water (can boil in a pot on your grill) for a few minutes. Result is a "walking omlet" akin to a walking taco. Ingredients are fully-customizeable and there's practically no cleanup required.

    That is awesome.

    Another way to make omelets is to bring a pot to boil water in. Take a plastic zip-lock sandwich bag and put 2 eggs and everything else you want in your omelet in it. Drop it in the boiling water and about 3-5 min later you have an omelet. Use a carton of egg whites for people watching their cholesterol.

    Couple drink ideas that have gone over well at my tailgates:

    Champagne and Orange Juice (Sparkling jucie for those not old enough)
    Hot Chocolate and Schnapps or RumChata

    The latest and greatest

    BananaChata

    Ingredients
    2 parts RumChata
    1 part banana liqueur
    1 part caramel vodka
    Banana slices

    Directions
    Shake with ice and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a banana slice caramelized with RumChata and brown sugar.

    Re: Breakfast/Brunch tailgate ideas

    We have always had a tradition of ordering Casey's breakfast pizza. It is easy, cheap and good. I highly recommend having them cut it into party squares. It makes the pizza go so much further because of it being smaller in size. There is usually between 5 to 8 of us and 2 larges are more than enough to have it for 2 days.
